Question Title Does Ruby Lane permit the sale of items made from Ivory or other endangered species?

Ivory and Endangered Species Site-wide Guidelines

1. Ivory may no longer be listed or sold on Ruby Lane as of August 17, 2015.

2. Antique items made in whole or in part of any species listed in CITES Appendix I must include the following declaration:

"All state and federal documentation and certificates required by law for commercial sale, import or export, have been obtained for this item.   Proper legal paperwork will be included with it at shipment."

If the shop owner does not have all the necessary paperwork required by law or they do, but the declaration above is not included in their listing, the item may not remain for sale on Ruby Lane and we may choose to remove the listing. 

If you are unsure whether or not the plant or animal-based product you have to sell is made from a species listed in Appendix I, you should check to be sure.

Please note: Ruby Lane Customer Support is unable to offer further advice, or assistance on this topic. As a shop owner it is your responsibility to fully understand the laws surrounding the items that you choose to offer for sale.
